The bedroom is a sanctuary - a place where you can escape the noise of life (minus your alarm clock, unfortunately) and focus on your own relaxation in peace. You don't want anything in there that will detract from that sense of calm or distract you from getting a good night of sleep. That being said, it doesn't have to be a beige-on-beige bore-fest, either...

These bedrooms from our San Francisco House Tours keep things simple with soothing colors and minimal accoutrements, but the results are never ever boring. By adding small doses of color or pattern, be it in a single painted wall or pile of throw pillows, the rooms maintain a sense of the individual without being distracting in the least. We'd be happy to curl up in any one of them.
